Duesseldorf's Uerige beer, considered one of the world's best 'Alt' beers by experts, is now releasing new 0.33 litre bottles with a Braille label.

Blind activist have welcomed the news.

Joana Zimmer, an activist said: "For blind people every drink is actually a lucky dip. You often have no idea what's about to go in your mouth”.
